Samkhya Philosophy: The Roots of Yoga

 This workshop will introduce you to the philosophical foundations of yoga: samkhya. Topics to be addressed include historical and philosophical contexts; the samkhya model of the universe and of consciousness; the concepts of purusha and prakriti; the theory of the gunas; and the elements that make up the mind, body, and nature.

To aid your understanding and integration of these important concepts, this workshop will progress through lecture and discussion to reflection and meditation, and then to application and yoga practice. There will be time to explore how the tenets of samkhya philosophy inform your yoga practice, and how this knowledge can enhance both your practice and your life.
